Built to transform steam into liquid during the boil, our steam condenser lid will enable you to brew inside without worrying about moisture collecting on your walls and ceiling, which can cause mold issues. These lids are not only designed to fit Spike kettles, but will also work with most other kettle brands on the market.

From a better boil-off rate to major cost savings and conveniences, you will find many benefits by adding this to your brew setup.

Features & Specs:

  • Compared to boiling without a lid, our SCL has a 50% reduced boil-off rate and results in a ~6% total boil-off.
  • Replaces the need to install a hood for indoor brewing
  • Prevents mold from forming on walls and ceiling
  • Third-party lab tested to show that DMS is completely undetectable (under 25 ppb) after only 30-45 minutes of boiling
  • Discharge water is very hot and can be used for cleaning
  • Compatible with Spike Kettles and the Spike Solo
  • 1.5" tri-clamp port for CIP ball
  • 4" tri-clamp port for hop additions
  • Water usage:
    • 15 gallons/hour for 10g, 15g & 20g lids
    • 25 gallons/hour for 30g &. 50g lids

Steam condenser lid on SSBrewtech EKettle

As always the Spike team delivered beyond expectations from order, to customer service, product and delivery. Writing this review not only for the great product but because I could find very little info on using this with SSBrewtech EKettle. I am glad to report that my first brew went fantastic with it, no steam escaped and lid never moved. I will admit its not a perfect fit, its snug and sits a little high but this did not impact the performance at all, still pulled a strong vacuum. Thanks to Spike once again for making each and every brew day a little better! Cheers

Steam condenser lid on Brewzilla 65L

Bought this for my Brewzilla 65L to brew in my basement without ventilation. It works great even better than expected. Great product that does everything as advertised or better. Cheers!

We are no longer ‘steamed’ at Flying Moose.

Worked as expected and our brewery was not inundated with a cloud of steam during the boil. We had to adjust our kettle power settings and the wort loss was significantly less than with an open kettle. The system does use a good amount of cold water, we are working with different setups for recycling the outflow water from the condenser. The condensate water does pickup aromas from the brew kettle so be advised.

condenser lid review

I've used this item three times and it has performed well. Still adjusting to proper power levels to prevent boil overs. Hopping with hop spider is a work in progress. I would really like if Spike could come up with a perimeter gasket for CIP. Ton's of water comes out from under the lid while CIP'ing. Overall - great product.

Necessary Eye Candy

The steam condenser lid is a beautiful piece of equipment that is necessary for any use, regardless of indoor or outdoor brewing. Intuitive system, easy to use, and the thing just makes your brewery look cooler. Not to mention the most important part: the increase in efficiency, decrease in boil off, and decrease in time spent getting up to boil. Absolutely essential in my eyes. My only suggestion to Spike would be the choice to bundle it with a system like mine, the 20g Solo+. My suggestion to anyone purchasing the lid is to go ahead and grab the Spike CIP ball.
